Woven Silk Necktie 1970s Vintage Tie The Persian Shop New York Gorgeous Quality
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is an early 1970s necktie featuring exceptional quality woven silk. This tie was sold at The Persian Shop, located at 534 Madison Avenue in New York City. The Persian Shop began as an antiques, jewelry and imported curio business in 1941 and still exists at that address today although it now sells primarily modern design jewelry. I’m assuming by its style that the tie dates to the late 60s or early 70s, although I did acquire older ties from The Persian Shop in the same lot. The fabric used in this tie is quite exquisite, a mix of blue and cyan coloured thread woven in a floral pattern, with a hummingbird incorporated in the design, on a deep red background, very rich looking. The tie is in very good condition - I have not had it dry cleaned, but it is very clean and in usable condition as is. I’m not sure that the colour will display properly on a computer screen, but it is a beautiful tone of red. The tie measures 55” in length and has a width of 3 3/4” at its widest. This tie is really gorgeous - unique in quality and look!
